Totally agree. What wondeful additions, especially the 21st and 22nd.

What about the Crazy Fingers from the 22nd? The early CFs were the best IMO and where June of '76 is concerned it seems like the 6/14 CF has received most of the recognition but I'll stick this 6/22 version right up there with it.
Such a gorgeeous and delicate tune with top shelf Hunter lyrics. This performance is a stunning jewel in the crown of the June '76 performances.

I sure do love the Crazy Fingers, and I wasn't really thinking of mentioning all the cool things I like about the show, because there is so much. But next time I listen, I will be thinking of it with Crown Jewel of the June 1976 shows in mind, so your reputation is on the line here, ha ha. I absolutely love these shows and so excited the new tapes are turning up here now. You're right to mention that 6/14 is a very popular contender. Not sure if I have ever really tried to decide which one I like most, but there was a time years ago when I listened to 6/14 on my cassette a lot on a regular basis. Oh, I got all inspired by it and even drew some cool pictures on the set list whenever I made a copy for anyone. I also love the Boston Music Hall 6/12 and the Beacon 6/15 shows.

Well, it's hard not to love love Comes A Time from this 6/22 too.
